Degree Works for Students

What is Degree Works? 

Degree Works is a web-based tool that provides a clear and convenient method for students, academic advisors, and faculty to track degree progress, to prepare for registration, and to plan for graduation. 

Degree Works matches students’ academic and course history against the degree requirements as defined in the University Catalogs

How do I access Degree Works? 

Currently, you can access Degree Works via the following link: https://degreeworks.wku.edu/Dashboard/.

You can also access Degree Works through TopNet (Advisors & Student Data Inquiry tab > Student Info/Maintenance header > Degree Audit).

What is the Plan feature on Degree Works?

You can use the Plan feature on Degree Works to create an individualized academic plan to visualize your path to graduation. You can use this feature to create a plan using a major template or build the plan with course requirements from your degree audit.  

If you have questions about the Plan feature, please contact the Advising and Career Development Center at academic.advising@wku.edu or call 270-745-5065.
